Fills an important gap in medical sociology. In an era of information overload, busy scholars and students will appreciate these accessible introductions to the field's key concepts.
The second edition of Key Concepts in Medical Sociology contains a remarkable range of high level yet accessible essays. The volume will be useful to neophytes as well as seasoned academic professionals.
This is a very suitable book for 1st year students as it introduces them to main and essential concepts in Medical Sociology/Sociology of Health and Illness. A must reading book.
Good book that informs on the essentials. It is broken down into sections that make it easy to locate what you are looking for.
An excellent and fascinating text
It is interesting book with up to date concepts in medical sociology,I have considered the book useful for my class with undergraduate medical students.
I have been looking for a reasonably-priced medical sociology text for a VERY long time. This has a true global perspective (not just European, not just American), meaning that students will come away with global cultural competency AND I can seamlessly supplement with information for my country and state. My only wish is that I had found it earlier!
An excellent reference source for students embarking on the study of the sociology of health, illness and disease.
Clear user friendly definitions useful for students on a range of undergraduate courses.
This is a great starting point for many sociological concepts - thank you!
Not adopted at this time, possibly another term.
A well structured and written text that introduces students to some of the sociological concepts applicable in examining health from a bio-psychosocial perspective.
This book offers a comprehensive overview of key and emerging issues(conceptual, theoretical and heath care practice) in medical sociology. As a sociologist with a research interest in this area I found the book to be a helpful and informative compendium of key concepts from some of the leading contributors in their respective fields. In my opinion, this book is more suited to second and third year undergraduates. However, I think it would work well as a core textbook for postgraduate students of health studies/sociology of health.
A handbook for any student to have by their side as they embark on any course exploring the sociology of health, medicine and disease.
An excellent book! The second edition is even better than the first! I like the new entries, including the topics of embodiment, emotions, risk, eHealth and Bioethics, to name a few!
It could be really useful for my students, but i can not include it in the bibliography as essential as far as some of my students are not fluent enough in English yet. Anyway, it would be included as supplemental and i will encourage its reading.
This is a really useful collection of concise, accessible and informative mini essays on a range of medical concepts and conceptualisations. The book is ideal for students, including those following health professional courses, and for more seasoned academics and scholars. A very handy volume to keep at hand.
An excellent easy read exploring the concepts of sociology.
This is a useful text for broadening students insights at level 6 and beyond
